How To Make A Toilet Roll Octopus

In just minutes, you can turn a boring old toilet roll tube into a happy octopus! This is a fun, quick and easy craft from NetMums that children will love – perfect for rainy days!

First things first, paint your toilet roll. It doesn’t have to be orange – you could go crazy with colours and add spots or zigzags if you want to.

Next make eight evenly spaced cuts with scissors from the bottom of the roll to about half way up, as shown below, all the way around.

Now curl over the strips using your fingers. Glue on some googly eyes and use paint or a black pen to draw a smile, and your octopus is complete!
